E-learning at Waterloo Elementary School will continue through next week leading up to the Christmas break.
The school went exclusively to e-learning this past week due to COVID-19 cases and quarantines among staff members, which left it shorthanded.
“We still have several staff members who will need to continue in quarantine or isolation; therefore, Waterloo Elementary School will need to continue with eLearning for the week of December 14-18, 2020, the final week before the holiday break,” said District 55 Superintendent Ameca Thomas. “We expect to return to full five day per week face-to-face learning environments at Waterloo when students and staff are scheduled to return on January 4, 2021.”
LCSD 55 is asking everyone to observe appropriate safety protocols with respect to COVID-19 over the holiday season.
“We hope the two week holiday break will give everyone the chance to recover,” said Thomas, “and we will be able to begin 2021 with all of our staff and students at Waterloo Elementary School and in all of our schools in good health and ready to learn as we move forward.”
